has made very clear that this is a priority for the obama administration. senator kerry did some very gd work as a member and chair of the senate foreign relations committee in righting the treatment of women and the need to address abuses and problems. so i'm confident that women and girls will remain a singular essential part of american foreign policy. >> while she was secretary, clinton teamed the state department up with the gallup organization. that to collect hard evidence of the impact of investing in women and girls. clinton hopes it will be a tool for makg a persuasive argument for such investments in the future and valuable policy information. >> we have strong evidence that women play roles in all kinds of things, and in particular, in peace-keeping and conflict prevention. they raise issues in these kinds of negotiations, like human rights and human security. that are fundamental to forging a lasng and sustainable peace but we need more internationally comparable data to examine women's contributions affect conflict regions and only, then, can we really create 401(k)l0s f
